The CUSP work programme is organised around five core themes: (M)eaning and moral framings of the good life; the role of the (A)rts and culture in delivering of prosperity; (P)olitical and organisational dimensions of sustainable prosperity; (S)ocial and psychological understandings of the good life; and (S)ystems analysis to explore narratives of sustainable prosperity.

The findings of our MAPSS research themes are drawn together through a rich portfolio of engagement across business, government and civil society. This portfolio includes a unique cross-theme case study to develop An Economy That Works. The second is a collaboration on sustainable finance with a coalition of thought leaders including the Aldersgate Group. CUSP provides the secretariat for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Limits to Growth, a platform for cross-party dialogue on economic prosperity in a world of environmental and social limits. We have initiated an extended public dialogue aimed at bringing together people from all walks of life and all sectors of society to develop new visions for a lasting and sustainable prosperity. Chaired by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, The Nature of Prosperity offers a stimulating environment for discussion and a creative forum for change.
